Couple found with baby in hand-baggage at Sharjah airport

An Arab man and his wife who were stopped at Sharjah airport for not having visa for their baby tried to smuggle the five-month-old boy in their travel bag. But their attempt failed after the baby was detected by the scanning machine.

The two arrived with their baby on Friday but were not allowed in because they did not have visa for the newborn. They were allowed by airport authorities to stay at the airport until the visa office reopens on Sunday.

On Saturday morning, the man apparently got impatient and told his wife to bundle the boy into her handbag after noticing that the security men who had stopped him were replaced by new employees at the end of their shift.

“She put the baby in the bag and the couple tried again to beat security….but they were stopped after the baby was detected by the scanning machine,” the Arabic language daily Emarat Al Youm said, quoting airport officials.

It said the couple were arrested and charged of endangering the baby’s life, adding that the woman confessed to police that she was told by her husband to hide the baby in the bag.
